Best for what? Performance, data integrity, minimal impact on the source system.....the list goes on.

The best isolation level is the one that best fits the needs of your requirements.

Most of the time, Read Committed (the default level) will do what you want and is "the best". If you have specific needs, then pick something else, but, most of the time, the default is the best.

Are you saying you want the best performance? We can't tell you what is best. Read what G2 said above, unless there is a definitive reason to do otherwise, the default is probably your best option.

You'll have to clarify that.

In most cases, Read Committed will peform just fine. In a few, Read Committed Snapshot, or Snapshot, will perform better. In a few Serializable will actually perform better.

It all depends on what you're doing with the data, how the data is structured, and what you expect applications and users to want from the data and application(s).

If what you're looking for is some sort of recommendation that Read Uncommitted or NoLock will "perform better", you won't get that, because it's false. If you're fishing for that recommendation (I don't know if you are or not), then I'll say what I say ever time that comes up. Yes, it can be faster in some circumstances, so long as you don't mind getting wrong data slightly faster. And it's not faster than other isolation levels (RCSI or SI are often just as fast or faster, so is RC under many circumstances). Sometimes it is, but "fast and wrong" isn't a good solution in the vast majority of cases.

So, performance and locking characteristics really depend on your situation. There is no "Run Faster" option in SQL Server.
